started it in 2007 with harry reid to block george w. bush. george w. bush never challenged this. >> correct. and in fact, george w. bush's lawyers wrote recently in the newspapers that this is presidential power. the constitution gives the president the power to make recess appointments. and they are undermining. >> that is really not in dispute. what is in dispute here is whether the senate was actually in recess and the question comes who gets to decide whether the senate is in recess? the senate or the president? >> and i think the oath -- you also have to put this in broader context. >> things got done during that -- >> they weren't in town. they weren't in town. you could not consider a nomination because they weren't here. >> the thing about this, though, put it in broader context. the more interesting aspect of the ruling was them dialing this way, way back and saying in fact if you look at the constitution you can't even if you are a president hold out the recess appointments and then make them finally put them forward when the senate is in recess. the recess has to happ

to elbow their way to the front. for george h.w. bush that's a great example. another great example, william f. buckley. he had liberal friends. in fact, he campaigned for liberals that were his friends even though he knew it upset some on the conservative side. for william f. buckley, it wasn't a blood sport. >> to end this block, to counter it just a bit, and i'm sorry but it has the added value of being true, the president does need to reach out.agree. but he has, and it hasn't worked. so when he does it again, the republicans actually need to show up. >> you just quoted henry kissinger. there is hope. >> that's like me going jogging for ten minutes and saying afterwards, you know what i didn't lose 30 pounds. no i'm dead serious. they have stuck their toe in the water. that is it. when you still have democrats, democratic senators that run the senate andrea mitchell complaining that they've never been to camp david, the president doesn't call them they don't go over to the white house, then it's time for him to be more aggressive about this. >> two points quic
they have been there already. it's called george w. bush america. it has two unfunded wars, depression and ongoing effort to divide americans over wage issues. it leads to secure a presidential win in 2016 by changing the rules of the electoral college. now under the old rules the candidate who wins the popular votes gets all of the state's electoral votes. which is how president obama beat mitt romney handily 332- 332-206. but under the new rules presidential candidates would split the electoral college votes based on which congressional districts they won with two additional electoral votes going to the winner of the popular vote. so if those rules had been in effect last year, president obama would have lost to governor romney 262-273. nice thinking. right now those rules are in effect in two states maine and nebraska. but g.o.p. legislation in michigan pennsylvania and virginia are also considering making the change. the g.o.p. also isn't backing down on its effort to restrict access to the ballot box by potential democratic voters wherever it can. so the democratic legislators in
and george w. bush began the second term as president and the minority rights you have in the u.s. senate, that requires more than 60 votes to usually get things done, was very instrumental in making sure that the second term of george w. bush wasn't a runaway freight train. now, what is true and i think progressives are coming from is that president obama's first two years in office, there was an unprecedented number of filibuster. it wasn't being used on big matters but on everything. but with the agreement was able to do last night was on some lower court judges as well as lower court cabinet positions, they're easier to pass as well as to be able to pass some procedural moves. very incremental change, thomas. the white house happy with it. progressives not so much. >> all right. so people that know the movie "mr. smith goes to washington" this is not like that. >> exactly. that was what liberals and progressives wanted the most. if you wanted to actually filibuster, you had to do it on the floor in person as long as it took. that was not part of the refor s s and that left some people
under george w. bush. even george w. supported reinstating the assault weapon ban. but it was the republicans in the senate who stood in the way. which is why it makes this compromise on the filibuster all the more perplexing. i think we need to look at the assault weapons and magazines for these guns. they'll do everything they can in washington, which is fighting back and pushing back on an common-sense legislation that is proposed and they'll savage anyone who gets in the way. >> jennifer: what is frustrating about the statement they put out against dianne feinstein she repeatedly said we're not taking your guns away. this is just about assault weapons and high capacity magazines. it's not just republicans who might vote against this new rash of gun safety legislation. democrats, even including harry reid, the majority leader, and montana's bacchus they might side with republicans as well. so in the bottom line, does an assault weapon's ban have any chance of becoming law without significant filibuster reform? >> no, because the democrats in the senate are being

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> john: good evening, i'm john fugelsang. this is "viewpoint." thank you for spending your martin luther king jr. holiday with us. president obama marked his second inauguration at president with a speech that was less lofty and a lot of more lefty than his first time around. after taking the oath of office from chief justice john roberts mr. obama outlined a wish-list of progressive policies and programs for the next four years and called for collective action to put them in practice. >> obama: now more than ever we must do these things together as one nation and one people. we the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that bui
about george w. bush's second inaugural address when he said i want to liberate all people all over the world, and even conservatives thought are you nuts, are you crazy? you can't do that. yesterday obama talked about really liberties at home, both in terms of gay rights and in terms of health care and in terms of the power to do good, the power to make good, the power to be something. that was a much more narrow vision, and one he said we won't get done all in one fail swoop. to me this was the obama we really hadn't seen, and i think a good indication of where he is heading. >> it was a domestic address. we did talk about -- he did talk about ending wars, but really the focus was on domestic rights, domestic advancement. >> the one thing he didn't talk about, which, of course, the campaign was based on, was the economy and jobs. right? this was an address that really was very aspirational in many moments, and especially talking about equal rights, and at the same time i think there are a lot of americans out there saying right, but what i'm really concerned about right now is whe
for both of george w. bush's inaugurations combined. although inaugurations are explicitly about putting elections behind us, about accepting the results of the election and agreeing mutually that we will proceed with this new government now which we have chosen as a group, it is hard on days like that not to look back, at least a little, to appreciate how different inauguration day would have been had the election gone the other way. particularly for an inauguration that took place on the eve of the 40th anniversary of roe versus wade. >> i hope to appoint justices to the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution. and it would be my preference that they reverse roe v. wade. >> in my view, the right course for roe v. wade is to have it overturned. >> i would love to have the supreme court say let's send this back to the states rather than having a federal mandate through roe v. wade, let the states again consider this issue state by state. >> my view is that the right next step in the fight to preserve the sanctity of life is to see roe v. wade overturned. >> do i belie
he was the one who asked george w. bush at a press conference whether he had -- were there any mistakes he wanted to do over in his presidency and bush couldn't think of one. it was a really interesting moment and that was because of the question that he had asked. i don't think he's given to making wild statements at all. >> it wasn't sort of a gaffe at the-- on the fly, it was in a 2000 word piece. >> i'll say there's a school of thoughts right now among democrats that the way for president obama to win now is essentially to put his boot on the neck of republicans and try to just, you know, completely destroy them. >> well, that's you said the school of thought within the democrats. is it the school of thought within cbs news or john dickerson or the media? >> i can't tell what you they're thinking, but certainly there are a number of opinion journalists who agree with this. >> is he an opinion journalist? >> no, the political director of cbs, but also by the way, rights for slate and the article was in slate and prides itself on being edgy and interesting and saying a little

a third of democrats think george w. bush's supporters probably rigged the election in ohio back in 2004 through voter fraud, including a majority of african-americans. about the same number of republicans, 36%, think obama's supporters did the same thing to win last november although there was no evidence of any cheating or anything, even a machine foul up. think back to nen. more than a third of democrats are part of truther crowd, people who believe president bush knew about the attacks before they happened, as do nearly 60% of african-americans. the difference in the parties is the knowledge base. republicans who know more about the news are actually more likely to believe conspiracy theories fueled by right wing media like fox. danica see know is a political science professor at fair li dl dickinson university. michael, you brought this to our attention. i want to get you as a generalist like me, what do you think this told you that surprised you, this poll? >> well, it reinforced what i have suspected all along, which is that the business model at the far right is predicated on fea
